Residents slam removal of traffic light where NJ EMT was killed

Neighbors say the light slowed people down, and are even angrier now that speed has been determined a factor in a crash that killed off-duty EMT Michael Burke

Dennis Sharkey and Lucia Frazier said ever since the light at Avenue A and Fourth Street was removed last Feb. 14, motorists have been speeding through the area.

“It has turned Avenue A into a speedway,” Sharkey said. “The cars speed by here, especially at night time.”
